Being a big fan of the Vienna Lagers I enjoy this one frequently. A bit more flavorful than the Dos Equis. Enjoy it with a lime wedge. And, of course, it goes great with some Mexican food!

Great beer when buying in bulk or for a party. Has a skunky smell, which i enjoy, and it is not too thick to fill you up after one beer. Enjoyable, drinkable, and shareable. Much love.

Such an underrated beer. I've started making my own clone of this for the summer months. Light and easy drinking, but has a brown sugar/bready flavor to it that masks the corn providing the lightness.

Pours a clear, reddish brown with about a finger of white head that sticks around a while. Smells of brown sugar, grass, and earth. Taste is good, balanced. Sweet brown sugar, nuts, herbal, and grass. Clean finish. Pleasant beer

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 12/17/2016. Pours crystal clear reddish copper/brown color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy hop; and slight roasted bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes presence. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/creamy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a great Vienna lager. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Great rich Vienna/Munich malt flavors, with balancing noble hops. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Served in a bottle at the local Mexican place, alongside some botanas. It's been way too long since I'd cracked one of these open, and I'd forgotten how good it is. Seriously, this toasty, semi-sweet, and clean lager can go toe-to-toe with many micro Vienna lagers. Every sip brought a wonderfully sweet (a noce balance of toffee and caramel, with bready notes that keep it from being too sweet) and roasted malt flavor to wash over the the tongue. I may have found my go-to cheap beer.

Poured a dark amber into a pint glass. One finger head disappeared quickly. Toasty flavor but not "burnt" like some darks. Feel is ok....wish it were a little smoother on the back end. This is wonderful beer that deserves your attention. Definitely six-pack worthy.
